5kVa power inverter design and simulation based on boost converter and H-bridge inverter topology

A Musa, G Galadanci


Five (5) kVA power inverter was designed and simulated base on two topologies; Boost converter and Half-bridge inverter topology. A 555 timer IC was used as the control at fixed frequencies of 25 kHz and 50 Hz for the two stages. The results of the simulation were obtained. The graphs for both stages were plotted and the results show a significant increase in the voltage and duty cycle. The wave form of the output gives a square wave form.
